Fodor's Review

This distinctive stone-and-log building, built in 1931, has been designated a National Historic Landmark. If you can't distinguish between a Clark's nut hatch and an ermine (hint: one's a bird, the other a weasel), check out the extensive exhibits on the park's smaller wildlife. Step out the back door to find yourself on one of the beautiful black obsidian beaches of Yellowstone Lake. Adjacent is one of the park's larger amphitheaters, and it features ranger presentations nightly in summer. The bookstore here features books, guides, and other educational materials, but you can't buy coffee.
